NUMBER OF ROOMS: One house for nine guests
ANNUAL CLOSURE: Open year round
THE STORY: When it comes to the Enamoura brand, we’re most intrigued by their “townhouse”, just a stone’s throw from La Bonne Mère. Renovated from floor to ceiling by Magali Avignon, who founded a collection of getaway locations (La Chapelle and L’Atelier in Saignon, a “country home” in Saumane), this place plays its cards close to its chest, discreetly tucked away behind a typical Marseille façade. What should you expect? Waxed concrete floors and rough stone walls spread out over a 200 m2 space, with a living room bathed in natural light, a contemporary kitchen, two bedrooms (vintage furniture, dried flower bouquets, linen sheets) and a shared bathroom on the first floor, and, on the ground floor, another living room, along with a parental suite that flaunts exposed rafters, a glass ceiling and a dreamy bathtub… For all the rest, there’s plenty of R & R to be had between the beautiful pool and the south-facing terrace, not to mention, at the back of the garden, a fourth bedroom in a fisherman’s cabin. In short, everything you could need for a most auspicious vacation… Rent the entire house out starting at €580 a night (for two nights minimum) and at €3,000 a week.
TOILETRIES: Soap, body wash and hand cream from the Marseille-based soap factory Marius Fabre.
BREAKFAST: Not included, but it’s possible to get a homemade brunch delivered (make sure to specify when you make your reservation).
LITTLE LUXURY: Leave with some of the décor packed away in your suitcase, like the beautiful Ursule terra cotta lamp designed by Enamoura and hand-made in Provence.
